I hope you are enjoying the change of pace that summer brings, and that you've adjusted to a change in your routine.
Here on the Raising Happiness blog, we've been catching up on the videos series I created with my friend Kelly Corrigan, best-selling author of The Middle Place and Lift. So hard for me to believe that it was nearly five years ago that we launched this blog (then called "Half Full,") with those videos.
The first four videos of the series teach about Carol Dweck's concept of the growth mindset. If you don't know what that is, those videos are your crash course in how to help your kids fulfill their potential -- in school, and all of their activities.
May you be happy,
